Hope for Our Time

week 12


Last week we talked about Jesus coming and raising His people from their graves and taking them to Heaven. He describes Heaven.

He says there will be no sickness, death or crying. What is one of the things that cause sickness here on Earth that we won't have in Heaven? Sugar. There will not be any sugar loaded drinks. These are not good for us. There will be no foods high in cholesterol, of course, no tobacco products that cause lung and other concerns and no streams flowing with alcoholic drinks. There will be no death in Heaven that means we won't be eating meat.

Some might ask, “Are we not going to have any good stuff in Heaven?” What do we call good stuff? Wheel chairs? Pain killers? Car crashes? Metal hips? Hearing aids? Glasses? Earthquakes? Volcano eruptions with their deadly ash? NO!!!

There will be no mortgage payments. Jesus said before He left that He was going back to prepare a place for YOU. He did not say He was going to put some money down on a place for you.

We will not live in fear of anything. The Bible says, “...eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man the things God has prepared for His people.”

He who hung the worlds in space has everything good planned. John said, “blessed is he that hath part in the first resurrection on such the second death hath no power.” There will be a second resurrection. With God's help let's make the first resurrection.
